Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Spray a 9x13 inch baking dish with nonstick spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the oats, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk and vanilla extract. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until combined. Stir in the melted butter and almost butter until combined. Pour the mixture in the dish.

sticky cinnamon figs
  1. Slice the figs in half or in quarters. Heat a skillet over medium heat and add the butter.
  2. Place the figs in the skillet and drizzle with honey. Sprinkle them with cinnamon and a pinch of salt.
  3. Cook the figs, tossing once or twice, for 5 to 6 minutes. You want honey and butter to create a syrupy sticky sauce in the bottom of the pan. Once the figs are finished, serve them immediately on top of the oatmeal.
